We have family in the area who are members, so I cannot comment on the pricing, but when the weather is nice this is a lovely place to come for a walk and to get up close to some of our native and visiting birds.
There are lots of different ponds with a wide variety of wetland birds, not just the usual ducks, geese and swans.
You can buy bags of food from the visitor centre and some of the birds here will eat out of your hand.
The visitor centre has a good range of interesting and informative exhibits and there are always activities for the younger ones to get involved with.
Pretty much the whole centre is wheelchair/pushchair friendly and the staff are very helpful and knowledgable.
In less good weather, there are some window seats in the visitor centre where you can look out of the large picture windows.
I think most visitors confine themselves to the centre and the ponds, but beyond this there is the wetland proper, with concealed hides looking out over the Bury Estuary where you can watch the wading birds and other waterfowl in their natural environment.
The small coffee shop/cafe is a bit of a let down though with a very limited menu offering mainly microwaved snacks. So I would avoid coming here for the food, but for drinks it is fine.
